1) The iRig does not work on any of the Android handsets I've tried. Despite this being advertised as doing so, I've tried it out on a Sony Xperia, Motorola Moto X gen2 and a LG Nexus 5X and none of these handsets work with it. Try it on an iPhone and it does work BUT.. (and this is the other major issue):
2) There are constant and many in-app purchases. And the app hounds you constantly to buy them in the form of virtual pedals (for those of you buying this as a present, pedals are what affect the guitar signals to create different effects - a major reason you would buy something like this for someone). And they're not even cheap. You do get a very limited selection to use for free, but it's pointless getting something like this with only three effects. The pedals range between £3 each and £50 for a pack, and they are only usable on other iRig equipment, meaning they're completely useless in other scenarios.
3) The instructions are just in pictures, like ikea. And the frustrations with ikea are shared with this product. There any several versions of the app (only one version is free) and there's not much of a clue which one you're supposed to use, or what the differences of them are. I think they just hope that you're stupid enough to buy one without doing some research on the app store.
I have returned mine and will not be buying anything from IK any time soon as they clearly cannot be trusted. the iRig is a gimmick with the clear aim of extorting more money from you for it to be at all useful.
Pretty much plug and play, though you need one of many guitar amp/effects apps available to get it all working. (The maker's own app is called Amplitude of which there are both paid for and free versions.)
Don't expect a sonic masterpiece however. There is a lot of floor noise for a start which you can dampen with effects, but at the expense of sound quality. If you like a dirty grungy sound that won't bother you much though! Despite that, it is a lot of fun especially with all of the sounds and effects the apps give you, and for basic practising it's nice to have if you get it cheap enough. (I got mine new from Amazon for £13). I don't think you would be able to do serious recording with it though.
If you're looking for something more high end, with no floor noise go for the digital versions, which input the sound via the 30 pin/lightning port. Expect to pay a fair bit more for these though.

Nothing but squealing and feedback. Tried on iPad and I phone and get the same on both with every app, bias, jam up, tone bridge. Not worth the money at all! Read morePublished 5 days ago by colm mitchell

What good is it when it doesn't even work after a couple of uses, useless. Getting a refund for this pathetic excuse for a product. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Amazon Customer
Really rather fantastic. Downloaded the free Fender iOS app from the app store. Not a bad emulation of a Deluxe reverb (I have the real thing) for free. Paying allows more options. Read morePublished 1 month ago by John Wigan
